Thanks for the reply,

I've got access to some tools that should aid getting the driveshaft out and pulled back in. I'll have a look at Bubasparks thread you mentioned.

General X3 Forum (E83) / 2005 X3 E83 2.0d OS Rear Reluctor Ring
« on: May 31, 2018, 03:40:45 PM »
Hi,

I had the usual 4x4, ABS etc lights come on last Sunday whilst driving into town, when going up the multi-storey car park the car was lurching every time I turned hard left. I parked the car up and went to meet some friends for a few beers. Picked up the car the following day and there were no warning lights and the car drove fine.

I plugged a code reader into the car and got a speed sensor error (OS rear). The error was not currently active.

I'm assuming that it may be the reluctor ring corroding and causing the issue, so I'm thinking I might change the reluctor ring and clean up the drive shaft. I believe the hub nut is 36mm, is this correct?
Is the socket to remove this a standard socket or do I need to buy a special one?

Thanks

Mick

Thanks for the replies,

The car doesn't have a tow bar fitted, not sure if it has had one in the past.

I did read on another site that someone had the same code fault and was advised that it was the ABS speed sensors. I plugged a Foxwell code reader into it yesterday evening as they can read the live ABS speed sensor data, they all appeared fine. The interesting thing was I ran the diagnostics and it showed no faults!

So Carly shows a fault and Foxwell doesn't, I'd rather believe the Foxwell reader as it means I've got nothing to fix lol. As I've got no warning lights on the dash maybe that's the case.

« on: April 30, 2018, 11:49:53 AM »
Hi,

I'm down to one last fault code on my car. the error code is 005F1E and it appears to be something to do with the dynamic stability control.

The fault explanation (from Carly) is "disabled trailer roll logic about EEPROM: variant coding: info entry"

Does anyone have any idea what this means, or what the problem could be? There are no warning lights and the car drives fine.

Thanks

General X3 Forum (E83) / Re: 2005 X3 E83 2.0d Lambda problem
« on: April 07, 2018, 11:48:30 AM »
Just changed the oxygen sensor, cleared the fault codes and went for a 10 mile drive. Read the codes when I got back and no oxygen sensor faults.

So that's another job ticked off the list, just got to get the snapped glow plug out and the fan sorted, then the car should be perfect.......

The problem has now changed, the fan now doesn't come on at all, but will spin if I turn on the A/C.

So the fan is still getting power, but it doesn't seem to kick in to cool the engine down. I read somewhere that the fan should spin on start for a short time as a system check. Is this correct?
Mine doesn't do this.

Does anybody know at what temperature the fan should kick to cool the engine?

Well, the Foxwell didn't give me any more information, so I've decided to just change it anyway and see if the error codes disappear.

So my next question is, what is the best way to get to the Oxygen sensor from inside the engine bay?

I looked on RealOEM and it looks line I have one oxygen sensor and two temperature sensors. I've ordered the oxygen sensor (Bosch) and the proper tool to remove it. just need to find the best way to do that now.

Thanks

Both thermostats have been changed and the coolant temperatures are all good now.

Hi,

I thought the temperatures were very odd, I tried looking for the live data on INPA. There were two analog pages but neither of them showed any O2 sensor (Lambda) data.

I have a friend with a Foxwell scanner that shows the live data for O2 sensors in millivolts.
I am hoping to borrow it from him in the next few days, I'll post the results.

Thanks for your help so far.

Hi,

The following information was taken from INPA for the Lambda errors. (translated from German)

Type of error:   (2)   Signal or value below threshold
Readiness flag:   (17)   Test conditions not yet fully complete
Error-statur:   (35)   Error currently present, OBD-debounced
MIL-status:   (48)   Error does not cause the warning light to light up (MIL)
P-Code:      P2245   Lambda probe Nernstleitung Circuit (Bank 1, before catalyst) -  low
Engine Temperature               -15.00 C              63.00 C
Engine Speed                  2688.00 1/min      2784.00 1/min
Suction Air Temperature            0.00 C         -36.75 C
Voltage Ki 87                  4.88 V         10.46 V


Type of error:   (2)   Signal or value below threshold

Error-statur:   (35)   Error currently present, OBD-debounced
MIL-status:   (48)   Error does not cause the warning light to light up (MIL)
P-Code:      P2252   Lambda probe Virtual mass control circuit (Bank 1, before catalyst)-Low
Engine Temperature               -25.00 C              48.00 C
Engine Speed                  3872.00 1/min      2720.00 1/min
Suction Air Temperature            -15.75 C              -48.00 C
Voltage Ki 87                  2.74 V         10.46 V

Does this give anymore clues, the car has done 85000 miles

Hi,

I'll see if I can get some more information and post it this evening.

Hi Horizon,

Thanks for the reply (again).

I've checked out the Carly parameters, the only one that stood out for me was the Oxygen mass flow upstream of particle filters. That was giving a reading of  2.79 Kg/h this was at at tickover and fully warmed up.

I've no idea if that is ok though.

General X3 Forum (E83) / 2005 X3 E83 2.0d Lambda problem
« on: March 07, 2018, 01:58:36 PM »
Hi,

 I have a couple of fault codes that are Lambda related, they are as follows:

 Fault: Lambda probe signal virtual ground
 Code: 0041F6

 Fault: Lambda probe signal Nernst
 Code: 0041D6

 Do these codes mean the Lambda sensor is dead?
 Is there anyway I can check the Lambda sensor?

 I believe that there are two sensors in the exhaust before and after the DPF, is this correct?, if so how do I know which is broken?

 The fault codes came from the Carly app and adapter.


 Thanks

Well, I got some of the work done over the weekend.

Both thermostats were changed, I had errors on three glow plugs, so I bought four new ones.
This went well on three of the four, glow plug number three snapped! I have found a good tutorial on removing broken glow plugs on another forum, so I will give it a go when the weather gets a little warmer.

I now only have one glow plug error (the broken one) so I am not going to change the controller yet. The engine starts much better now in the cold weather, so that's good news.

I also managed to do a swirl flap delete, this is very easy once you get the inlet manifold off.

I've got a few more error codes to sort out, but the car is running better and starting better already. I just need to find out more about what the fault codes mean and how to fix them.

General X3 Forum (E83) / Re: A question about music connectivity
« on: March 01, 2018, 09:37:42 AM »
Mine turned out to be a BURY Technologies unit, I couldn't get it to work so I stripped it out of the car.

I then found this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/262171774877

The first few times I used it, I had a couple of problems, the music would suddenly stop and the aux option disappeared. This happened a couple of times, but since then it has been working fine.

It seems pretty good for the price.

Mick
